Well done! Exposes the history and many of the people responsible for promoting this manner of making money, mostly people at the top, and includes the people pushing the agenda like former and current presidents of the US. It tells the stories of the people who join and their motivations. The stories are sometimes heartbreaking. The presentation is very engaging. I'm looking forward to future podcasts.

Fantastic review of multi-level marketing (aka network marketing). The hosts are compassionate toward their interview subjects, and do a wonderful job investigating the topic at hand. can't wait to listen to the next season!

this makes me sad. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to feel bad for those in MLMs or this host berating her friends and generally confused about $$... oh now she's on a date with Dan just being all 'uh huh' and coyly giggling

Fascinating and well-produced series, worth a listen for anyone intrigued by the world of MLMs or even cults.


What if we told you that with zero experience and only a few hundred dollars down, this podcast could change your life? Well, we’d be lying. This season on The Dream, Jane Marie dives into the world of pyramid schemes, multi-level marketing, and all the other businesses that require their members to recruit their nearest and dearest in hopes of a commission. Join us as we trace the path of get-rich schemes from Jane’s roots in rural Michigan all the way to the White House.

Coming Soon...The Dream

We’ve all got that friend or cousin who steadily hawks some overpriced miracle drink, leggings, or shampoo on social media. They aren’t just trying to sell you something, but would like to offer you the opportunity of a lifetime to achieve riches while working from home on your own terms. You’ve probably been too afraid, or too loving, or too reasonable to confront them. Not us. This season on The Dream we go inside the world of multi-level marketing to expose this pyramid-shaped business model for what it is. Join us on this bizarre journey filled with snake oil salesmen, shifty millionaires, struggling single moms, and a few sweet grandmas.
